four-legged fun for kids!

Winter Critter Camp

Winter Critter Camp is a fantastic, fun-filled educational time for animal-loving children! Campers will have fun with arts and crafts while they learn how an animal shelter operates. Each camp session includes time with the cats and dogs in our care.

Going Green Camp (children ages 6 – 11)
Campers will focus on how to be environmental superstars. At this full-day camp, campers will create green-friendly crafts, learn how to live more sustainably, and spend time with our eco-loving animals.

Kindness Camp (children ages 6 – 11)

Kindness camp is a unique hybrid camp where participants learn how an animal shelter operates while also volunteering. Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, animal care support, cat & dog enrichment, laundry, organizing and much more . Kindness camp can be used to satisfy volunteer requirements for schools or youth organizations.

Woofing Wizard Camp (children ages 6 – 11)

Join us at the Richmond SPCA for a day full of exploring the wizarding world! Campers will be making wands, learn about magical creatures, sort our adoptable animals into magical houses, and more! Campers are encouraged to dress as their favorite witch or wizard, but not required. 

Camp refund policy: For non Covid-19 related cancellations, every effort will be made to accommodate enrollment changes based on session capacities. Cancellations made prior to one week before camp are entitled to a refund minus a $10 processing fee; refunds will not be available for cancellations made within one week of the start date of any given session.

Covid-19 refund policy: If a camp must be cancelled due to counselor illness, quarantine or isolation, the Richmond SPCA will offer full refunds to enrolled students for the cancelled camps. If a student is forced to miss a camp or leave a class early due to his/her/their own quarantine or isolation, he/she/they will not be eligible for a refund for camps missed. However, if we receive notice 7 days or more in advance that the camper will need to drop a camp in its entirety due to quarantine or isolation, we will issue a full refund.
